This means that more than 280 Domino's locations will each donate 200 pizzas to local hospitals, medical centers, schoolkids and their families, health departments, grocery store workers and others who are in need.

“We want to show how much we appreciate and support those who are in need of a hot meal, and those who are on the frontline, working to save lives,” said John Hall, a New York Domino's franchisee. “We hope that this simple act will bring a small sense of normalcy and a smile to their faces.”

Domino's will be donating pizzas to people in need across the entire country and will donate more than 1.2 million pizzas -- or about 10 million slices -- total.
